I try not to carry to much but you never know where or when you will need your planner and planner accessories. this is what I carry in my planner bag on a day to day basis. Its light, its easy, and most of all its useful! I’m sure you will also know by now these are my all-time favorites!
Ipsy makeup bag
I purchased my Ipsy makeup bag brand new at a thrift store for $1.00. its perfect size and a great bargain. I find tons of great condition pencil cases at thrift stores for great prices. You just have to look!
Paper mate Ink joy colored gel pens 0.7mm in lime green, pink, light blue, purple, blue, navy
Paper mate Ink joy gel pens 0.5 black
Mildliner double sided markers in purple, blue, green, grey, red
Paper mate Flair M in purple, green, red, black, navy
Tombow double sided brush pens in 620 and 873
The Paper Mate Inky joy gel pens can be purchased basically anywhere but the cheapest place I found was Staples. You can price match while at the store and they will sell to you for the cheapest price you can find. I purchased my Mildliner pens from EBay for only $6 shipped for the whole set. You can bid, or buy it now. But the best way is to keep checking back to find the cheapest price listed. They post little things like this on a daily/weekly basis. Paper mate flair pens used to cost a lot but sense new pens came out I noticed the price dropped a bit. Still pricey but you can find them for cheap on EBay. I got lucky and found mine at Rite Aid for $0.99 each. Once again, just keep checking back and look around. You can also price match these at Staples. The Tombow brush pens can be found online or stationery shops. they usually run around $3 each but sometimes you can find cheaper deals online like EBay!
Rainbow skinny washi
I don’t carry the whole rainbow most of the time lol I just carry about two or three. I found some on EBay for only $2.99 for the whole set. I also have the Recollections brand washi in pastel rainbow. It retails for about $7-$8 but I get the %50 off coupons and it will cost about $3.50-$4.00 with the coupon for the whole set plus a tape dispenser!
PLANNER STICKER ORGANIZER:
Oh Hello Stationery Sticker Organizer
its small but big enough to carry all your functional stickers. If I have a full sheet, I sometimes just cut it down to fit the pockets inside the organizer. It comes in different cover options and has plenty of room to stuff your stickers in. it’s not binder big so fits perfect in my bag without taking up a ton of room. And you would be surprised to see how many stickers I have in mine (that will be a future blog post). They are on sale now at ohhelloco.com for only $3.56 plus use the code “LEAHBEEE10” for 10% off you order!
Joanne’s reusable tote bag in Owl print
there are two versions of this bag. Large or Small. I have multiples of these bags in different prints and use them for shopping. But I use the small owl print bag as a planner bag. Its small but holds just the right amount of stuff plus extra room. Very durable, sense I’ve had these bags for a long time and use them for multiple things like packing clothes, shopping, storage, planner bag, etc. they usually run around $2-$3 but most of the time they are on sale for $1!! Which is a decent price! Plus, a 50% off coupon when you sign up for emails you can get it for $0.50!!!
Filofax Geometric Personal Planner Erin Condren Horizontal or Inkwell Press A5 Flex
I always ALWAYS have my Filofax on me. But there’s times where I also take my bigger planners, like my Erin Condren Horizontal or my Inkwell Press A5 flex. All these planners plus the accessories all fit perfectly in the Joanne’s tote bag.
Dollar Tree iPad case Target Dollar Spot felt case/holder/whatever it is cheap and perfect size!!! The Dollar Tree iPad case was made for the large iPad but fits the Filofax Personal just perfect! they have different colors like black, blue, grey…. I even saw a pink one! And they are only a $1!! With a Velcro closing, its perfect protection for my lovely filo! The Target Dollar Spot case was found by a surprise! I purchased one for a $1.00 and one was given to me as a gift. I have a blue one and a grey one and they both have a button closer and fit the Erin Condren planner just perfect! its literally made for the Erin Condren! I haven’t seen them recently in the $ spot area of target but I’ve seen similar cases and they can also be found on EBay sometimes.
